"The proxy server is refusing connections"

Same thing here with tor browser bundle tor-browser-2.3.25-6_en-US.exe on a Windows XP system . I tried those different solutions on this page, no success.

I finally reverted to version tor-browser-2.2.37-1_en-US.exe and that works fine.

I just tested the latest dev version (tor-browser-2.4.12-alpha-1_en-US.exe) and it fixes the problem, whatever that was.

Please edit my previous comment, no need to revert to 2.2 :-)

Thx for the good work, tor dev !

Does not fix the problem for me.
I have tried all the suggestions here, nothing works.
Perhaps it would be a good idea to test some more before releasing a new build.

All these people, including me, have connection issues now. Is there a way to go back to a previous version and actually get this thing to work?

Me too. Never had the slightest problem with Tor or upgrading before. Comments about firewalls or settings may be well-intentioned but are just insulting our intelligence. We can't have all simultaneously screwed up our machines. This release is fucked.

I experienced the same problem of "The proxy server is refusing connections" with Tor Browser Bundle 2.3.25-6. That's because the Socks 5 proxy in Firefox is misconfigured to port 9150 instead of 9050. I reconfigure it through Tor button > Preferences > Use custom proxy setting > SOCKS Host port and that fixed the problem.
Enjoy Tor.

I just spent the last 30 minutes on this problem - suffering for 2 days with it. And you just fixed it. You are brilliant!!! - why is this at the bottom of the page though???? -it should be on top!

The proxy server is refusing connections- The same Firefox problem everyone seems to have though this is a month later. I downloaded Tor and it worked fine until the next day when I got this notice. BTW I am not so savvy that I can do the complex (to me) reconfigurations and gyrations that seem to be required to fix this problem so I guess I will have to go elsewhere for security until Tor solves their problems with Firefox.
